    I'm looking to upgrade my production monitor, something with dual SDI inputs, between 17-24", not too heavy, can do PIP and has little or no delay (this part is very important).

    Any recs? What are you all using? How do clients like them? I've been asking people on set and there's been surprisingly little consensus so far.

    The same thinking here. I think I will buy an Atoms Sumo. Any thoughts from users?

    I find the Osee needs a little sharpening, but colors are good.
    The only crucial thing missing on the OSEE is the cross conversion, to be compatible with every shoot.

    And it's too bad the LEMO 2 output works only with DC.

    They replaced my fleet of JVC DT-V DT-E for the better, but one thing I liked more about the JVC was the free calibrating software. With the OSEE, you need a 2500$ Calman licence.

    Love my Flanders DM240. I was patient (maybe 2 months) and scored a demo unit for $600 discount. Highly recommended.

    SmallHD 1703 P3X has been very good, and has all of those features.

    Same. I've had mine for a long while now and it's been bullet proof.

    Thanks for the responses. I was under the impression Panasonics and TVLogics are the industry standards. Are you guys finding otherwise?

    For the Flanders, is delay not an issue? I owned an AM210 and there was a slight delay even at fast processing speed. Most clients/directors didn't mind, but some did.

    And is there an argument for buying Osee's other than affordability?

    I've used the SmallHD 1703 P3X and liked it too. Definitely considering that.
